Packhouse Facilities

AAFL packouse facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art modern technology driven systems so as to ensure that apples are washed, sorted and packed adhering to the most stringent quality standards.

Controlled Atmosphere Storage


Eating crunchy, juicy AAFL apple around the year is possible due to Controlled Atmosphere Storage.
 
CA Storage involves carefully placing the apple in large airtight refrigerated rooms where temperature, oxygen, carbon-di-oxide and humidity are carefully monitored. This controlled atmosphere slows down the respiration rate of the fruit which in turn slows the ripening process.

 

 

Benefits

  • Extended storage life resulting round the year availability
  • Maintenance of fruit firmness
  • Stops the development of certain storage disorders such as scald in apples, and slow the growth of decay organisms
  • Realization of higher degree of turgidity so that fruit appears juicier and crunchier
  • Better retention of nutrients
  • Effective control of disease causing micro organisms
